Sambhavtaha: ZEE5’s latest addition to its short-film club

Sambhavtaha, a Best Film – Fiction award winner at Critics Choice Short Film Awards becomes a ZEE5 original as the OTT platform adds this masterpiece to their library.

The film has a script that highlights the struggle of a farmer who goes to great lengths in order to protect his farmland from being converted to a concrete jungle. The government starts coming after their only source of livelihood to build highways and they have no choice but to fight back.

The trailer projects it to be a story that will tighten its grip around your senses as it leaves you to be wanting more of it. While the footage shows snippets of how prepared the lead character is to take extreme steps if required, there’s supposedly more to this than meets the eye.
